Dennis Quaid Adopted a Cat Named Dennis Quaid

Dennis Quaid Adopted a Cat Named Dennis Quaid

"I had to", Quaid, the actor, gushed to local news station WSLS on Wednesday.

Adopting Dennis Quaid actually came at a great time for, uh, Dennis Quaid.

The Hollywood star added: 'I'm out to save all the Dennis Quaids of the world'.

Dennis Quaid, a shelter cat in Virginia, is heading to his fancy new home after being adopted by the famous actor he's named after. Lynchburg Humane Society state that he has a "big heart" and "likes to curl up on the couch".

"It was really off the wall, but I just couldn't resist".

Quaid, who recently launched a pet podcast called The Pet Show through his company Audio Up, heard about the cat and felt it could make the ideal adoption story.

Danielle Ulmer, who is the Lynchburg Humane Society Adoption Center Manager, said that she thought they were being pranked. "I had to", stated Dennis Quaid. "We reached out to the shelter".

The "Parent Trap" star - who is father to 28-year-old actor Jack Quaid, and 12-year-old twins Zoe and Thomas - is a known lover of pets, and even co-hosts a podcast titled "The Pet Show" with Jimmy Jellinek. However, after it was all said and done, the shelter started to think about other names for their animals that may attract others to adopt them. However, shelter staff did not believe that the famed actor's interest in adopting the cat was true.

Oh no, I meant Dennis Quaid the adoable kitty, who was featured on a segment WLSL Lynchburg in Virgina as part of the Clear the Shleter initiative.

'Maybe they should start naming animals in shelters after different celebrities and see who bites, ' Quaid suggested. Randy Quaid already sounds like the flawless name for a new cat or dog, so hopefully someone will jump on that next and find Randy a great new home.
